Billboard Launches Top Streaming Albums Chart With Bad Bunny as First No. 1

Billboard has officially launched its new weekly chart logging the Top Streaming Albums, with Bad Bunny‘s nadie sabe lo que va a pasar mañana leading the inaugural list.

The new chart logs the 50 most-streamed albums of the week in the United States as per Luminate and is billed as a “component chart” to the Billboard 200 — similar to the Top Album Sales chart which places records by their traditional album sales. One streaming equivalent album unit is equal to 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by the songs.

Benito’s newest record, which also debuted at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200, tops the chart with 176,000 streaming equivalent album units, translated to 239.56 million on-demand official streams of the songs. Joining the rest of the top five are Drake’s For All the Dogs at No. 2, Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time at No. 3, Rod Wave’s Nostalgia at No. 4 and Zach Bryan’s self-titled album at No. 5.

Elsewhere in music, Lil Uzi Vert announced that they will be retiring after the release of Luv Is Rage 3.
